I have been scheming about the best way to show off all of the stuff that I make. Rather than just slap my stuff up here, I thought we could all share the things that we have created. So here it is – my first ever weekly Show & Tell.
I decided to make my 10-month old niece a quilted Christmas stocking. I hope it will become a treasured keepsake for her, knowing that her loving aunt toiled tirelessly to make it beautiful and amazing. But who knows. Regardless, I had fun making it.
Here is the tutorial that I followed. I was smitten the moment that I saw it. Luckily I had some scraps on hand and was able to beg, borrow, and steal enough the finish the mini-quilt for the front. In the end, I only had to pay for fabric for the back. All in, it cost me $2.75.
Here’s what the mini-quilt looked like before I cut it: (BTW those were 1.5″ inch squares sewn together – so finished size = 1″ each. PITA! But totally worth it.)
Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of it before I gave it to my niece, but I will try to get my lovely SIL to snag a photo for me. I will let you guys know when this post gets updated.
So what have you guys been creating lately? Any beautiful gifts for loved ones? Or party gear for yourself? Written anything amazing? Knitting anything warm for the long winter ahead? Please include your links in the comments!
